PSA Celebrates 1 Million Diesel BlueHDi Engines Produced

Unaffected by the emissions scandal, PSA Peugeot Citroen celebrates a new milestone, as the millionth Euro 6 BlueHDi diesel engine has just rolled of the assembly line.

Built at Tremery, in the Moselle region, France, the powertrain uses three emissions control mechanisms in the exhaust line: an additive-technology particulate filter, an oxidation catalyst and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, positioned upstream of the filter to reduce nitrogen oxides released by the engine.

After pioneering the use of the particulate filter in 2000 and being the first carmaker to use SCR technology on all its vehicles, this milestone of one million BlueHDi engines – the most effective pollutant emissions reduction solution in the market – confirms PSA Group’s commitment to offering its customers sustainable and clean mobility solutions“, commented the PSA Group VP for Powertrain and Chassis Engineering, Christian Chapelle.

In Tremery, PSA manufactures two different-sized Euro 6 BlueHDi diesel engines, the 100 PS and 120 PS 1.6-liter and the 2.0-liter, available in two outputs as well, with 150 PS and 180 PS. The site assembles 7,000 powertrains daily and it’s also responsible for producing the 3-cylinder PureTech petrol 1.0-liter and 1.2-liter units, while the five- and six-speed gearboxes are being put together at the Metz plant. Both facilities employ 5,000 people.
